Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Mel B, the former Spice Girls member and TV personality, just obtained a restraining order against Lorraine Gilles, the former nanny she alleged of having a relationship with her estranged husband, Stephen Belafonte, and got impregnated by him.
In the court documents submitted by Mel B and her team, they claimed that Belafonte proposed Gilles keep the baby and they should all live at the home shared by the singer and her estranged husband. Later, Belafonte decided to terminate the marriage of Gilles and Mel B said he used her money to pay for Gilles’ abortion. Gilles or Belafonte are yet to comment on this claim.
Mel B also filed the request for a restraining order against Gilles in order to gain access to a storage locker that is under the former nanny’s name. Mel B believes the sex tapes and photos that both the former nanny and Belafonte threatened to release to embarrass the singer are inside that storage locker. A judge ordered Gilles to stay away from Mel B and not remove any property inside the storage locker.
Mel B and Belafonte were married for almost 10 years. She filed for divorce on March 20 and cited irreconcilable differences. She initially requested for joint custody over their daughter, Madison, but later wanted sole physical custody over her with no visitation privileges for Belafonte.
The singer reportedly tried to leave Belafonte multiple times but he threatened that he will destroy her life and her career. He also told her he will take her kids from her.
The legal team of Belafonte denied Mel B’s claims. They added, "What matters most to Mr. Belafonte is the safety and well-being of his daughters and step-daughters. It's a shame that Ms. Brown elected not to proceed in a respectful and amicable fashion in this very private matter." In a statement by Belafonte himself, he said that he is very distraught with the allegations and he is thinking about how the issue would affect their children.
